Alpine Glass recently had the pleasure of replacing the roof of an outdated polycarbonate conservatory, increasing the extension’s energy efficiency significantly and looking stylish as a result. The project involved replacing the roof’s existing panels as well as the bulky uPVC frame, all in an effort to transform the conservatory into a more inviting and comfortable living space suitable for use all year around.
High performance glass for increased thermal performance
Manufactured to the homeowner’s exact specifications, Alpine’s replacement glass roof featured a slimmer frame that was 50% thinner than the previous polycarbonate. This makes for more glass, less roof and an unrivalled U-Value of 1.5 to ensure that heat is more effectively retained within the unit. The home can now begin to enjoy the increased thermal performance that reduces the risk of condensation and reduced heating bills.
The homeowners wanted to be able to use their roomy extension 365 days a year instead of just the spring or summer, opting for a glass roof rather than another polycarbonate replacement ensures they can do this. The new roof provides many benefits in the rain as well as sun also however, being glazed enough so as to reduce the amount of noise heard in the event of heavy rainfall.
Ultra slim uPVC frames for a brighter atmosphere and greater light entry
Independently tested as one of the strongest frames around, despite boasting exceedingly slim uPVC frames that make for uninterrupted view of the outside, a conservatory roof from Alpine is invisibly reinforced in its rafters. This means that they’ll more easily resist harsh weather elements, withstanding 33% heavier loads than a traditional polycarbonate roof.
Because the property’s new roof frame is slimmer, natural light can more easily penetrate through the glass and into the space. This not only brightens the mood instantly, but also creates a more inviting and natural feel which the homeowners are more likely to relax in.
The homeowners were so pleased with their conservatory’s upgraded glass roof, they wouldn’t hesitate in recommending us to friends or family. They expressed: “The staff were always helpful and did a job well done, the new conservatory roof is a huge improvement on the overall house.”
